"I feel that films need to fill three purposes - They need to entertain, they need to inspire, and they need to enlighten or inform. If you only have the former, you get a brainless turkey that will soon be forgotten. If you only have the latter, you have a philosophical propaganda film that jams its agenda down the audience's throat. You need it all, or you've wasted the audience's time and their hard earned money they spent on a ticket. If the films I make fulfill all three purposes, then I can rest easily, even if everything isn't 110% perfect. Whether or not I have succeeded on those fronts just yet is, of course, entirely up to the audience - We make movies for them, not for ourselves exclusively." - Alex Thompson -
